Cygames Beast’s new competitor talks about his characters counterpicks and more at Final Round 20.
At Final Round 20, BornFree caught up with Eduardo “PR Balrog” Perez–newly signed to Cygames Beast–to chat him up on a variety of topics. PR Balrog revealed he’s got two secondary fighters for Street Fighter V waiting in the wings for counterpicks: Kolin to handle Cammy’s aerial attacks, and Alex to grapple with Zangief. PR Balrog also describes how Season 2 of SFV is both “more hype to watch” but more stressful to play, and heavily favors rushdown play after the nerfing of meterless invincible DPs.
In this detailed interview, they also talk about what overall system changes Perez would like to see for SFV, as well as his expectations for Balrog after the next balance patch, his worst matchups as the Crazy Buffalo (F.A.N.G, Cammy, Laura, and Zangief), his favorite player of all time (Twitch.Hx.CYG BST|Daigo Umehara), and much more.
